Little trinket boxes filled with dried fruits and snacks were a traditional part of Bruneian weddings. They served as both a symbol of appreciation for guest who have come from afar and also, practically, a source of food for the long commute home.
Today, this tradition continues. These trinket boxes have evolved into inricate wedding favours gilded in gold and often set with sem-precious stones. This wedding favour crafted for a royal wedding in Brunei is a stunning example of this beautiful tradition reinvented.
